City, national governments will 'work together' on energy crisis

Deputy mayor of the Buenos Aires City government, María Eugenia Vidal, announced today that she had agreed to work alongside the national government in order to help thousands of families affected by blackouts in the Argentine capital.

The politician this morning headed the first reunion of a crisis committee set up to analyse emergency solutions for residents hit by power outages, and a second summit is forecast for the afternoon between federal security secretary Sergio Berni and City minister Guillermo Montenegro.

"We have been working together with both governments and we will continue to do this much better since the formation of this committee," Vidal revealed in a press conference.

The PRO politician also explained that during the meeting representatives agreed on the necessary measures to help City residents without essential services.

"Sanitary attention and evacuations have been coordinated. There will be three shelters open for those affected to use," Vidal explained, while also asserting that the possible handover of energy provision to the City government "was not discussed... it is not the right time."
